GREEN BAY - Green Bay Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix caused a bit of a stir on social media Thursday with a post on Instagram in which he bid former Packers cornerback Sam Shields a fond farewell.
In particular, it was a passage citing Dom Capers’ play calling that caught the attention of fans and some members of the media.
Some observers interpreted it as a not-so-subtle shot at the Packers' defensive coordinator.
Clinton-Dix took to Twitter on Friday to clarify his stance on his defensive coordinator:
So, it’s not Clinton-Dix who has problems with Capers’ calls, it’s his teammates. But he’s not going to throw anyone under the bus.
We reached out to Clinton-Dix to see if he wanted to clarify anything further.
“Nah, I said what I had to say,” Clinton-Dix replied.
In truth, this kind of thing goes on in every NFL locker room. There isn’t a coordinator in the league who has every player buying in on every call. That said, it’s an interesting peek behind the curtain at some of the dynamics at play inside 1265 Lombardi.
